Exemption for fishing and fish stocking: grant

The Lower Saxony Fisheries Act (Nds. FischG), the Lower Saxony Internal Fientry Ordinance (BiFischO ND) and the Lower Saxony Coastal Fisheries Regulations (NKüFischO) regulate the details of fishing and fish stocking. According to this, certain situations are completely prohibited and other acts are only permitted with exceptions.

In particular, it is prohibited to:

  • the catch of fish protected and undersized all year round,
  • the catch of fish during their conservation period,
  • fishing in fishing routes,
  • in the territorial sea, the use of fishing gear, more detailed in the Inland Fisheries Regulations, which generally go beyond hand fishing,
  • the stocking of species of fish and crab not listed in the Annex to Section 12 (3) of the BiFischO ND, or the exposure of non-native species in the territorial sea, and
  • the use of electrical fishing equipment.
